GEMM 2012: “Global Exploration, Mining and Minerals in 2012”, was held on April 17 & 18, 2012. Its objectives were to:
- Confront the toughest issues that must be addressed for the mineral sector to move forward in demonstrating sustainability and responsibility over the coming decade.
- Identify specific priority projects or activities responsive to these issues to define “Pathways for Improving Practice” and “Agendas for Responsive Research”.
- Expand and deepen across sectors and disciplines the network of experienced and knowledgeable leaders, practitioners, decision makers and researchers from communities, non-government organizations, companies and governments.
